This is a story because the vast majority of users of social sites do not know that their information is crawled. This is the issue.
They post their inner thoughts, their lifestyle details, information which can readily be used for identity theft without realising that the information can be garnered and stored forever.
You can state caveat emptor if you wish but it still does not make it right.
